Can puzzles self-assemble?

Prof. Daan Frenkel ( Department of Chemistry, Cambridge University )

A holy grail of nano-technology is to create truly complex, multi-component structures by self assembly.

Most self-assembly has focused on the creation of 'structural complexity'. In my talk, I will discuss 'Addressable Complexity': the creation of structures that contain hundreds or thousands of distinct building blocks that all have to find their place in a 3D structure.
